Psalm 53–Fools and God

It continues to amaze me, how the world has always tried to both usurp God’s power and deny his existence.  It seems pretty foolish to deny God’s presence and impact on the world. One simply needs to look up at night to realize all this did not happen by chance.  Still, the world knows that to acknowledge God’s presence also requires an affirmative decision to follow or reject his leadership. Should they follow, they would have to submit to his leadership. To reject his leadership means they must usurp his role as God.

When men play God, it always ends poorly.  The most basic tenet of God is his love for us. He gave His Son as a sacrifice, to redeem us from our sin. If we truly want to usurp God’s role; we would have to become completely selfless and give up the thing we love most–to help others who could not care any less about our love and sacrifice.

No, men want to call their own shots and do things their way. Inevitably that leads to chaos.  Then God intervenes, and in love seeks to save that which is lost. For those that follow–peace and a meaningful life, for those that do not, pain and destruction.  Without a doubt, God is real and present. He loves us, and wants to give us a full and meaningful life and restore our place in eternity.  Don’t be a fool! acknowledge his presence and follow his leadership!

God Bless You

The fool says in his heart,
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

God looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,
    not even one.

Do all these evildoers know nothing?

They devour my people as though eating bread;
    they never call on God.
But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
    you put them to shame, for God despised them.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When God restores his people,
    let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
